NEW TOOL: People with severe food allergies can now tap federal disabilities litigation, leaving schools, restaurants and anyplace else that serves food more vulnerable to legal challenges over food sensitivities.

WHO IT COVERS: Institutions and businesses subject to the Americans With Disabilities Act could be open to lawsuits if they fail to honor requests by people with food allergies.

THE PRECEDENT: A settlement last month stemming from a lack of gluten-free foods available to students at a Massachusetts university could serve as a precedent for people with other allergies or conditions, including peanut sensitivities or diabetes.
